This is very insightful, thanks for the wealth of info and experience passed on. My apologies in delay for replying. This is exactly what we did (leaving on my own from other business partners) and now I’m almost starting again with machinery but still have all the accounts. Always fun trying to find winter employees who will be on “standby” for the 2 month duration. I have a bit of equipment already and have just purchased. Hard not going all in with the snow but it’s so unpredictable around this part of the world and of course without taking on the snow clearing, I don’t get the lots to salt. Have seven pieces of equipment including my truck/plow. I do this on the side as I have a full time career and have been building this up for a few years now. Thanks again!
